Spirituality The Spirit of Christmas by Annamaria Hemingway All the rituals involved at Christmas and the image of the tree sparkling with light is a mythological celebration that gives rise to a form of living psychic energy, which manifests from the ancient symbolism of the light. So, as we gather with our families and friends, and exchange gifts around the Christmas tree, we have the opportunity to reflect and rekindle the magical childhood awareness within ourselves of the true spirit of Christmas. For as the old year comes to a close, and a new year heralds unbound possibilities for growth and celebration of life, we are reminded of the birth that brought “tidings of great joy” and the promise of the everlasting life of the soul.

Science/Quantum Physics Light Limits Us To The Speed of Light: Part 3 by Laurel Botsford The science of Quantum Theory states that particles may be in multiple places simultaneously, the phenomena called superposition, which makes my ideas of imagining being someplace else while we are ‘physically’ on Earth, for example, completely real. Quantum theory also promotes the idea that either information travels at an infinite speed, i.e., there is no speed of light speed limit for things other than ‘light’, or, it says, there is interconnectedness in the universe, the phenomena called entanglement. According to Quantum, since everything was created at the Big Bang, then everything in our entire universe is interconnected.
